Abstract

The Klang and Langat Rivers flow into the Straits of Malacca to limn the compound Klang Delta and Klang Strait (Fig. 1). TIIC delta is distinguished by its complex network of inter-connecting tidal channels which also serve as distributaries of the rivers. Extensive low tidal flats of sand-mud sediments are present and are intimately related to the delta formation. Lying between the tidal channels are mangrove swamps, which are now essentially confined to the six most offshore islands for the state of Selangor. The innermost island, Indah Island, had lost most of its mangroves in 1999 for the development of West Port and industrial estates.
